letting go

i love summer and seeing the trees full of their leaves. i like to watch the leaves shining, shimmering as they dance and reflect the sun. i too love the pieces of me, dancing and moving together reflecting the different pieces of me and who i am.

i am not always happy to see the leaves falling, and i resist the thought of summer and fall passing into winter. what am i resisting in my life? what pieces of me am i holding onto that i need to let go to allow for growth?

why do i resist? the trees don’t resist the letting go of their leaves. it is nature. it is natural. it is intended for growth to let go and allow for change.

what do i need to let go? the change of seasons indicates that letting go for being and new growth is needed. i need change for my being and growth too.

it’s not easy to let go some pieces of you, even the pieces you don’t want, they are connected to you, a part of you. i have experienced, letting go allows for growth.

and so i do so again. this time, not so graciously, i put up a fight. i kicked and screamed. i allowed myself to do the kicking and the screaming, i allowed all that energy to flow through me. and when i was done, i let it go.

i let it leave me, i decided that i could feel it and that i didn’t have to hold onto it.

right away i felt lighter. right away i felt freer. right away i felt new positive energy coming in to create and grow in the direction that i want to go.

i was being truer to myself and allowing more of me to be who i want to be, allowing more of me to do what i want to do, and allowing more of me to experience what i want to experience.

it’s interesting to me that as the trees have lost their leaves, i too have lost some pieces of me. i let go what needed to be let go to allow for my being and growth. i let go what i needed to let go to live my truth.

what change do you want? what do you need to let go?

live your truth!

what do you want?

in my coaching class i answered questions as if i was beginning coaching with a coach. it was good to reflect and to connect to my dreams and desires. it was good to prepare as if i was going to coaching.

preparing like i was actually going to be coaching will help me to move forward and give me accountability to myself.

i have questions on my mind for discovery of what i want and what i can do to move forward in certain areas of my life. i have actions that i want to take. i am aware of what’s most import to me and what my challenges to focus on right now are.

i have a clearer thought and image of what i want and what i will do in the next 6 months and the next 30 days. i know where to direct my energy.

  • who do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do?
  • what do you want to experience?
  • what goals, dreams and desires do you want to accomplish in the next 6 months?
  • what do you want to accomplish, change or create in the next 30 days?

live your truth!

judging to gratitude

I was down and I was judging myself, thinking about all the things that I failed to do, all the things that I wanted to do and wasn’t disciplined enough to do them. thinking about the things that I want. feeling them missing. feeling the lack of all I want in my life. judging what I should have or could have done differently to not have failed and had the outcome that I wanted.

feeling the negative creates the desire, gratitude and appreciation for the positive. I  started thinking about what I want, and that turned my judging into gratitude. it changed my attitude for the day from negative to positive. I feel focused and a sense of urgency to accomplish tasks instead of the stress and overwhelm that I was feeling about all I need to and want to do.

thinking about what I want created a shift of focus from judging to gratitude.

what creates the gratitude feeling? thinking about your wants – who you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience and why you want those things. building the image of your dreams and desires, your goals and visions. getting the image clearer and clearer in your mind. and then bringing it into the present moment asking, what is most important now?

it’s a letting go and an allowing. it’s an opening to the God/Universe and not trying to control. it’s being aware of where you are, accepting that it is, and knowing where you want to go and taking action to get there.

for me, thinking about what I want, then what is most important to me, allowed my mind to get clear and focus on what I can do to move forward. I was connecting to myself.

I connected with my inner being. I switched the thoughts of judging to thoughts of who I want to be, what I want to do, what I want to experience, and what I can DO to be who I want to be, do what I want to do, and experience what I want to experience.

what I know is that challenge is growth. my negative feelings are a challenge to me, negative feelings are an indicator that who you are, what your’re doing is different than what you want to do, who you want to be. connecting to that awareness is the beginning of growth. deciding what you are going to do to create what you want is growth in action. habits and routines help to create more and more action.

what’s most important to you now? what action are you going to take?

live your truth!

mid-life what?

my mind was wandering around what it is that i want to experience in life. i’m ready for a big change, something more, something more fulfilling, something purpose filled.

a mid-life transformation. i would call these questions and the changes that i want to make a mid-life transformation. or maybe with how fast our world changes today, i can label it a transformation, clean and simple.

transformation, a time that you really connect to who you are and live your truth being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience.

dsc05857

  • who do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do?
  • what do you want to experience?

a time when you are digging deep and connecting to your inner most dreams and desires. a time that you find your purpose and passion for living your life.

a time of finding what your internal compass is. what are you values? what’s most important to you? do you let your values and what’s most important to you guide you?

what experiences do you want to have?

why do you want to have that experience?

how do you want to feel in that experience?

is that what you are living?

is that what you are choosing?

life changes. life changes slow, life changes fast. have you changed with life? are you doing what you want to do and experience? are you living your truth?

expanding awareness

every decision has ripple effects into other pieces of who you are and who you are being. every decision has ripple effects into other areas of your life.

with this decision, am i being who i want to be? am i doing what i want to do? am i experiencing what i want to experience? when creating the life that i want, the decisions that i make are not always about one thing but about the whole. what is it that i want? what is my awareness?

the experiences of life create growth or can stop it. is this experience something that is going to expand my knowledge, my ideas, my awareness, the dreams and desires that i have; and help me to become aware and grow into who i want to be, what i want to do and what i want to experience?

some decisions and experiences are clear in knowing they are supporting your being. some decisions and experiences are to expand your awareness and give direction to where you want to grow.

when you are trying new things and expanding your boundaries, it is uncomfortable to become the person you want to be if you are changing some deep beliefs and ideas on how you think you should be or how you think “life” should be. are these beliefs and ideas yours or are they from someone else, is it your belief? are these beliefs and ideas from a past experience that is no longer relevant to you now? are you choosing an experience for yourself, for pleasing somebody else or from habit?

uncomfortable decisions are a good part of life, they are decisions that support your growth, awareness and expansion being who you want to be and doing what you want to do. that is why an awareness of your being, who you want to be, what you want to do and experience and what is most important to you is important. with your awareness you can make decisions for what is most important to you to support who you want to be and do or for expanding your awareness more through new experiences.

is who i am being in this experience who i want to be tomorrow or helping me to experience new ideas for who i want to be and what i want to do? if i choose this experience, is it for this now moment or is it for creating the life that i want to live through growth?

when you are making decisions are you making the decision for what’s important to you? are you making the decision for what you want? are you making the decision for the person you want to be? are you making the decision to experience new ideas for new knowledge, new awareness and growth?

enjoy the journey! experience your life fully expanding your awareness, being and enjoying new experiences.

the gap

are you familiar with the gap?

the in-between of where you currently are and where you want to be.

man-person-jumping-desert.jpg

it is in this space that we become who we want to be, that we do what we want to do and experience what we want to experience.

it is the gap that gives us awareness to who we want to be, what we want to do, what we want to experience.

it is the gap that feeds our desire to become, to do and to experience the life that we want to live.

what is in your gap? where are you feeling lack? where are you feeling stress because you aren’t doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience?

get into the gap and enjoy the life that you want to live.

live your truth!

passion

what are you passionate about?

do you have a burning desire to live your truth? to live your dreams and desires?

dreams and desires fulfill passions. passions fulfill purpose.

“The purpose of life is to be happy.” ~Dalai Lama

passion is having a burning desire to experience or to have something. there are many things that i want and many things that i want to experience. they don’t all have the same level of desire. and my desire for a thing or an experience changes as well.

what keeps passion and desire for the wanted thing or experience high?

dscn6839

thinking about the desired thing and wanted experience and connecting to how you want to feel having experienced it keeps passion and desire high.

it is normal for passion and desire to ebb and flow.

when your passion is low connect to how you want to feel having attained your want or having experienced what you want to experience.

what are you passionate about?

who do you want to be? what do you want to do? what do you want to experience?

live your truth!

 

committed

what are you committed to?

are you committed to becoming better? do you have goals that you are committed to?

how committed are you? are you achieving your goals? are you becoming better?

mood-nature-river-water-90771.jpeg

commitment is the decision and dedication to a goal, to a task, to being or to doing.

when you are committed, you continually make decisions to be or to do what you are committed to. the commitment gives you power to be who you want to be, to do what you want to do.

your commitment creates the energy for you to move forward, to becoming better to attaining your goal.

do you have goals that you have not reached? are you being your best and doing your best?

if you are not, what are you committed to? it is something other than your goal. you are committed to the pleasure of being or doing something else.

there is a tipping point to commitment, a point at which you be and do what is needed to be better, to reach your goal. everyone’s tipping point is different, if you are not at your tipping point you are not fully committed. you are not feeling enough pain to fully commit to your goal, to being better.

why do you want to be better? why do you want to attain that goal? your why needs to be bigger than the pleasures that can distract you from your goals.

are you committed to being better? are you committed to your goals?

live your truth!

act as if

I have so much that I want to be and do.

I am happy and grateful for who I am now, what I’m doing now and what I’m experiencing and have experienced. it is fulfilling when I take a moment to reflect on where I was and where I am now.

however… I have so much more that I want to  be, do and experience!

we are continually growing in an upward spiraling growth. growing and expanding.

you grow, you create new expanded goals and visions, you grow more. you expand. you become! who you want to be, what you want to do, what you want to experience, and how you want to live!

dsc05857

to become, to do, to experience – act as if!

not pretending to be someone you are not or doing what you can’t.

choose to be who you want to be. make decisions and take action to grow and be the new expanded version of yourself.

choose to do what you want to do. choose to experience what you want to experience. act as if you are that person.

live your truth!
